We have an announcement!

We are pregnant!

Ok, just kidding, was anyone very scared for us, cause I would be!
(Although I would like to note that I have seen prego people and had pregnancy envy, go figure.)

The REAL announcement is that Adam PASSED the BAR!!!!
Wahoo!!!  Wahoo!
He found out on Saturday and we were all beyond giddy.  What a relief for Adam to have all of the hard work from the summer pay off!  We are so proud of how he juggled studied such grueling hours throughout the beautiful summer, helped us move and get the house ready, and was an amazing husband and father when little Jane came, even though it was getting close to testing day.

And since we are announcing things and need some pictures to feast our eyes on, Caroline started Kindergarten and she wishes that the weekend was filled with school too.  She has made lots of friends and has an obsession with one, Olivia.  It is the most innocent and carefree bond, I adore watching them.  They seriously almost hyperventilate when they spy each other at the bus stop.

Her favorite thing about going to school is riding the bus.  
We were going to wait a week and just drop her off at school ourselves, but she insisted on the second day that she ride the bus.  Adam rode with her just to make sure she was ok and wasn't too nervous (I just love how sweet you are babe!)
I am so glad he rode just so he could report how hilarious it was. 
The kids were chanting "Parent on the bus!  Parent on the bus!"  They thought it was the funniest thing.

Caroline sat by Olivia and they had a lot to say..or Caroline did anyway:
C: I can't believe we are riding on the bus!  Whoa, this bus driver drives crazy!   I hope he is careful.  Can you believe they don't have carseats on the bus?  That's crazy!
I can't believe you lost a tooth Olivia, that's crazy!
You have an Olivia backpack and I have an owl backpack.  Don't worry, it's not real, you can
touch it.

Adam said she used the word Crazy about 20 times. 
 The next day when Adam walked Caroline across the street to the bus stop, some boys were eyeing him up and down and said, "There's that parent."
He caused quite a commotion.

She has been giddy about everything, as you can see.  And Olivia and Caroline can't even get on the bus without holding hands.  
I knew she would be confident and thrilled to start school.  We were actually late the first day, (parent of the year, I know) which maybe was good because I didn't really have time to think too much.  
But when I quickly rushed her into her classroom where all the little innocent faced children were sitting, I started to lose it.
I had to steal a kiss from her, and poof, she was off and loving life.
I am so happy that she is comfortable and has a zest for life and learning.
Knock 'em dead sweetheart!  xoxo
